Ariel Mayor: Netanyahu Worse than Rabin

(Israelnationalnews.com) Mayor Ron Nachman of the Samarian Jewish community of Ariel said Friday that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s decision to freeze construction in Judea and Samaria is worse than the freeze imposed in 1992 by then prime minister Yitzchak Rabin.

Nachman said the freeze imposed by Rabin has been maintained solely on Ariel since then, restricting its growth to a population that is now barely in the 18,000 range, as opposed to Ma’aleh Adumim, near Jerusalem, which has twice as many people. But he gave Rabin credit for discussing the step with local leaders, something he said Netanyahu did not do.
